Delectable Die-cuts

It's hump day! Do you have any middle of the week scrapping plans? Hopefully I can inspire you to pull out some papers (and die-cuts) and create.

The die-cut words and phrases included in my recent scrapbooking kits are fun and easy to use. Tucked in here or there, embellished or not, they add great sentiments to cards and layouts. Today I'm sharing a page created with the May kit, Destinations Unknown, and featuring two Scraptastic die-cuts. "Noted..." from the current kit is tucked in among the flags below the picture. At the bottom of the page is the phrase "Love This Life", a die-cut from a previous month's kit, paired with a playful heart-embellished word bubble.


A paper chain of people, cut with my die-cutting machine (but easily doable by hand; google it!), is layered over a chevron "wave". The chevron stamp was a part of last month's Awake My Soul stamp set.


My love for bountiful banners continues, and I had way too much fun making this one. Most of the patterns from which the various flags were cut from only 2 sheets of paper, all chopped up of course! 


I really enjoy all the die-cut pieces (words, phrases and icons) included in Scraptastic kits. They are some of the most versatile embellishments around!
